What is an ‘appreciative encourager’? I googled it and got no hits. Zilch. I got ‘positive encourager’, ‘appreciative inquiry’, ‘encourager’ but no ‘appreciative encourager’. Slight panic moment… last week I had used the term at a Research in Practice Conference on supervision where I had co-facilitated a workshop. The conference was amazing and I felt privileged to be asked to contribute. But…panic, panic…what if the ideas I shared were not correct, substantial, evidenced???
